The Los Angeles Lakers’ locker room might be a very tense place for the rest of the season.

There were multiple talks about trading Lonzo Ball and damn near the whole team in order to get Anthony Davis for LeBron. That failed, and the talented young point guard appeared to have a message for his superstar teammate. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Women On Instagram)

Lonzo posted a video on his Instagram story late Thursday with P Diddy’s song “Bad Boy for Life” playing in the background. The lyrics, “We ain’t goin’ nowhere, we ain’t goin’ nowhere. We can’t be stopped now” could be heard as the oldest Ball brother zoomed in on the speaker.

If that’s not a direct shot at Lebron, I have honestly no idea what is. This also comes after LaVar went on TV Thursday and claimed his son was better than the three-time NBA champion. (RELATED: LaVar Ball Guarantees LeBron James Won’t Win A Title In Los Angles If Lonzo Gets Traded)

Again, it’s absolute chaos for the Lakers right now.

You know things are bad when people are taking not very subtle shots at their teammates with Instagram videos.

That’s not something you want to see if you’re running the Lakers or a fan of the team. I guess this is what you get when you allow one player, LeBron, to seemingly try to dictate massive trades, and then it fails. That won’t go over well with teammates.

I hope LeBron wasn’t planning on spending a lot of his free time with his teammates. They don’t really seem too interested in being friends right now.
